Hello! My name is Maura and I’m a 5th grade elementary school teacher in Massachusetts. I have been a teacher for the last thirteen years, and love that it’s different, exciting, and challenging everyday. My husband and I have been married for 8 years and he works as a firefighter and an Emergency Dept. Nurse. I am also mommy, to one amazing, smart, funny, six year old named Brayden. He is the best thing I’ve ever done, and keeps me on my toes! 🙂  In my “early” life before marriage, family and a full-time career, I wrote all the time. Whether it was journaling or writing fiction, I found it be so relaxing and rewarding, and it’s my goal to find that piece of myself again.
